Thank You Valleydale For Eight Great Years!

Dear Valleydale Church,

Thank you for the many kind words spoken to Renee and I over the past week. We are so grateful for the incredible blessing so many of you have been personally to us and how you have allowed us to serve alongside you. These past eight years have been the shortest-longest eight years in my ministry. On one hand, it seems like yesterday that the Greens were just getting to know the Valleydale family and on the other it hand, by the way you all have loved us and when I think of the many, many ways God has worked through us (all) over these years, it seems like forever.

As you know, God works in various ways to accomplish His purposes. Status quot or business as usual is typically not part of His plan. In order to fulfill His purpose for individuals and for churches, there are times God redirects our lives and creates change. Change is usually not a welcomed friend unless we are the author of it and have the capacity to control it as it unfolds.  However, God often uses the unrest that change brings into our life or into our church, to stir within us a new energy… a new passion to seek God in a fresh way seeking to understand what He is wanting to accomplish through what may seem like an untimely change. Ultimately, He desires for us a deeper relationship with Himself much more than what we might ever do for Him. In other words change precipitates change in us. That is if we allow Christ do do his ‘change work’ in us, molding us more and more into the image and character of Christ. His work in us precedes His work through us. So, welcome change and treat is as an opportunity to see God work in you and among you in amazing ways.

We love you!

Saint & Renee

    I hate I wasn’t able to be at Valleydale this morning. Thanks for all you did for us during those years. I know more great things are in store for us all. But, you will be missed.
